Picture Talk: From Community Building to Developing Fluency
Picture Talk is a very powerful Comprehensible Input technique that can give you a break from the stories, while still keeping your input comprehensible and engaging. Picture Talk can allow you to explore different topics, introduce new concepts and vocabulary before reading a class novel, and most importantly, it is a great way to build a strong class community. In this workshop you will learn the different ways you can do a Picture Talk in your class, including setting up the foundations for developing community through pictures. This technique allows students to learn about each other, and in higher levels, it allows you to tackle difficult topics that require reflection and discussion. It is a great technique to prepare students for the IB oral exam and the debates they have to face in more advanced settings.
